Letter: Shutdown is fault of the Democrats

October 1, 2013 

Harry Reid and the governing elite need to wake up and listen to Americans. For all the same reasons that Congress exempted themselves from Obamacare, the American people also want to be exempted from an overreaching government. We’ve seen how health-care premiums have increased dramatically as a result of the “un-affordable” health-care act. 

The Senate Democrats want to blame Republicans for shutting down the government. In reality, the Republicans stayed and negotiated in the absence of the Democrats. The Democrats own the shutdown. It’s time for people to get angry. We are seeing the fundamental changing of America just as Obama promised. It’s time for us to stand up and fight to maintain America’s core values.
